Not the best post publisher… My apologies!

I have to get back into this…

So here it is!

I am in Ontario right now at my family cottage, with my mom, dad, uncle and aunt. My whole family was here for the first days of the trip which was extremely fun. And loud. My three older brothers are not, and I repeat, not quiet. They ARE fun though : ) I love spending time with them. Especially now that we are all grown up… I think?  We do not see each other that often any more, so time with them is always enjoyable. It is a but more “zen” around here these days though, thanks to my mother who is a yoga teacher in the summer, but more so due to the lack of testosterone. And… I can’t say I’m hating it.

My daily routine involves lots of tennis, working out, yoga with my mom, and reading books. Oh ps. I just got a dragon tatoo on my back… ?? : ) I also have to mention the amount, and quality of the meals we enjoy up here. We have no power at the cottage. The term “roughing it” is said multiple times a day here. When friends come to visit us here we tell them it’s next to camping, to keep their expectations extremely low. Having said that, our main cottage should be at least “THREE TIMES BIGGER THAN THIS!” (Zoolander anyone?) The meals that come out of the tiny kitchen Boyd slaves in, is truly amazing.

This is the view from our cottage. And I swear, this picture is not even that good compared to some of the sights we see out here.

I am back in Vancouver in a week or so, and preparing myself now to hit the gym hard upon my arrival, in preparation for my Chile trip mid September!


My first name is Alice. I'm called by my middle name, Georgia. I grew up getting beat up by my 3 older brothers Christian, Boyd and Julian. They rock. I love pretty much every sport there is, except maybe rhythmic gymnastics. I wonder who invented that one? Cooking is a fun pastime on a rainy day. The feeling of being on the brink of disaster, going as fast as possible, is indescribable. And I'm not talking about driving a car. It feels awesome being completely and utterly exhausted after giving 110% during a workout. I tell my mother everything (almost)... Examining snowflakes fall onto my jacket while on the chair lift could keep me bewildered for hours(haha, ok maybe not HOURS). I'm pretty sure I make myself laugh too often. Listening to music with my headphones keeps me sane. Making someone smile is contagious. Finishing a knitting project, such as a wicked awesome headband, is totally satisfying. I love being Canadian and having people laugh after I say the words "eh" and "toque". And it happens often. Having friends around the globe is a really cool thing. Experiencing different cultures is eye opening. Traveling all over the world is the best thing, but there is nothing like flying into Vancouver, eating a home cooked meal with my family, and falling asleep in my own bed.
